To avoid the embarrassment of looking like half the other people at the Halloween party, it may be best to dress up as something other than the five most Googled costumes of the year.

According to Rare.us, the five costumes that have been searched on Google the most so far this year are as follows: 

1. Wonder Woman

The movie starring Gal Godot raked in more than $400 million at the box office, so it’s no surprise that many people want to look like the superheroine.

2. Harley Quinn

This was the year of the superhero movie with “Wonder Woman,” and the supervillain movie “Suicide Squad” boasted big returns, too, in 2016. Margot Robbie’s performance as Harley Quinn in the latter definitely resonated with viewers -- enough to make her colorful costume among 2017’s top choices.

3. Clown

They’ve always been terrifying, but thanks to the success of the “It” remake, evil clowns are back with a vengeance this Halloween.

4. Moana

Kids and adults alike are clamoring to dress like the latest Disney heroine.

5. Unicorn

In case you’ve forgotten, 2017 was also the year of Starbucks’ infamous Unicorn Frappuccino. It should come as no surprise that everyone wants to be the magical, mythical creature.
